Children and infants flying with Cathay Pacific – ages and tickets – how it works

Children and infants qualify for substantial discounts on the normal adult fares when travelling with Cathay Pacific. To be eligible for an infant fare, your baby must be under 24 months of age for the entire duration of the journey. So if your little one turns 2 years old prior to the return trip, you have to pay a child price ticket for the whole itinerary. So worth thinking about if your baby is coming up to their 2nd birthday as there is a big difference between the cost of an infant fare and a child ticket.

When you’re flying with an infant on Cathay Pacific bassinets seats can be provided. These are cots that allow your little one to have a proper lie down nap on the flights to Hong Kong and Australia. There are size and weight restrictions – see here for more details.

Each adult (parent or guardian) can travel with maximum of two infants each and there are restrictions in place, so please see here for further details…

Children’s price airline fares are available if your son or daughter is under 12 years old before the outbound flight commences. If you’re travelling with teenage children then you will pay adult fares for them.

And if you’re collecting loyalty points, children travelling with Cathay Pacific can earn Asia Miles through the Asia Miles Rewards programme on eligible fares.
